Die Aufregung um in Österreich geparktes Vermögen der ukrainischen Elite rund um Ex-Präsident Viktor Janukowitsch und die Oligarchen-Brüder Klujew reißt nicht ab. Sie sollen nicht zuletzt auf der geheimen Sanktionsliste der EU zu finden sein, die derzeit noch unter Verschluss hält. Doch auch umstrittene Oligarchen und Geschäftsleute aus dem Lager von Julia Timoschenko haben Österreich als Hafen für diskrete Veranlagungen auserkoren. Hinzu kommt noch eine Reihe von Ukrainern mit Austro-Connection, die gerade eifrig bemüht sind, ihre politische Gesinnung nicht allzu offensiv in die Öffentlichkeit zu tragen.

Die Dimension der ukrainischen Geschäftsinteressen in der Alpenrepublik sind indes beachtlich. Die renommierte Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) berichtet von rund 1,6 Milliarden Euro, die ukrainische Personen und Institutionen in der Schweiz gebunkert haben – die Vergleichszahl aus Österreich soll sich in ähnlicher Größenordnung bewegen. Nicht zuletzt deshalb, weil österreichische Banken in der Ukraine höchst aktiv sind bzw. waren, das heimsche Bankgeheimnis gerade im Osten guten Ruf genießt und die Möglichkeit der diskreten und steuerschonenden Privatstiftung Vermögen nahezu magnetisch anzieht.

Beim Wiener Consultingunternehmen BICG, hier werden ein Dutzend Firmen mit Ukraine und Offshore-Bezug gebündelt, versucht man zu beruhigen. Firmen-Chef Sergey Baharev: „Die Unternehmen haben verschiedene Zwecke: Holdings, Transportleistungen, Hotels in der Ukraine etc. Ich arbeite aber nicht mit Leuten aus der Politik.“

Ganz stimmt das nicht. So fungiert Baharev etwa als Geschäftsführer von AgroGreen Investments. Das Unternehmen gehört Olexandr Gravets, dem Mitbegründer von Julia Timoschenkos UESU (United Energy Systems of Ukraine).

Und bemerkenswerte Details verbergen sich auch hinter der Wiener MCB Agricole Holding. Das Unternehmen verfügt über imposante 70.000 Hektar Ackerland (zweifache Größe Wiens) in der Ukraine, Hühnerfabriken, Broterzeugungsbetriebe und Cottage-Wohnanlagen in Kiev. Als Aufsichtsrat fungierte bis vor kurzem Michael Rebasso, der Bruder des von russischen Killern entführten und ermordeten Anwalts Erich Rebasso.

Rinat Akhmetov

  • Net Worth: $12.5 Billion As of March 2014
  • Rinat Akhmetov has seen his fortune tumble this year with both his main steel and iron ore assets suffering from weak demand and slumping prices. To boot, he’s had protestors outside his London mansion calling for him to take a stand into the ongoing battle over Ukraine’s deposed president Viktor Yanukovich, who Akhmetov once called an ally. The pair reportedly had a falling out last year, which was followed by Akhmetov relinquishing his position in parliament. Soccer aficionado riding high after UEFA Euro 2012 games were played in his $400 million Donbass Arena. Son of a coal miner got his start buying up mining assets in Ukraine’s 1990s privatization, today forming the basis of his SCM holding company.

In the 21st century, to be seen as a contemporary businessman, solving global problems is as important as making profits,“ he told Forbes. His efforts have been varied from hosting summits at the annual World Economic Forum in Davos to underwriting large-scale AIDS campaigns and endowing a free museum of contemporary art in Kiev. He is seen as a bridge to the West, and has in January came out to support Ukraine’s anti-government protestors. Pinchuk has a great deal to lose in Ukraine’s conflict with Russia as the majority of his pipe manufacturer, Interpipe’s, sales come from Russia. Another conflict: Pinchuk has taken fellow billionaires Ihor Kolomoyskyy and Hennady Boholyubov to court in London for over $2 billion in damages for their alleged failure to share ownership in mining assets with their fomer partner. Son-in-law of ex-president Leonid Kuchma, Pinchuk made his first fortune with Interpipe, supplying pipes for huge energy customers including Gazprom and Rosneft.

Boholyubov is also in another London court sparring with his rabbi Yonah Pruss over commissions on London real estate deals.

This may be in advance of a run for president; currently he serves as a member of the Ukrainian Parliament. Despite taking a revenue hit, when his products were effectively banned from Russia, Poroshenko continues to focus on external markets, particularly in the EU, where he opened his first shop in Budapest. He got his start selling cocoa beans, then purchased several confectionery plants, uniting them in Roshen in 1995.
